Have you ever had any of your work stolen, or know someone who has? Being in the art industry, I know a lot who have had it happen. Some have been simple cases (Like finding someone using it on Facebook as profile pictures.), but others have actually found their work in stores being sold on t-shirts!
I recently had to report someone for using one of my images and thankfully it was a simple process and the image was removed with next to no fuss. It's not the first time and it won't be the last.
What do you think constitutes as art theft anyway? Where is the line drawn? (No pun intended.) Do you consider tracing art theft if it's posted as original work? What about the use of official images in things such as wallpapers? It's one of those things that makes you think as soon as you end up having to deal with it and I got curious.
Shush to the lot of you, you're all ikkul bebes and I'm the giant dinosaur that's about to wreck your playpens.

I guess I am of the opinion that you shouldn't take other peoples stuff, but if you post online, don't expect people to do the same for you. If you are really serious about protecting your work, you pretty much need a patent. I think it is worth the risk though because if I post anything online, I want to share.
If you can join them, why would you try to beat them?

I have, however, seen many people's works used without permission. I personally think, that unless the person is out of reach and you credit with a link (However, still drop them a message! If they feel that they don't want you to use their art, they'll tell you), you shouldn't use another person's art at all, not even for signatures. Now, there are exceptions, but yeah.
I hope this made sense.
Now, being a part of the role-playing community, I'm friends with people who recolor pictures and I don't mind as long as they give credit to the artist. Normally I'll draw a picture of the character for them if they're using a recolored picture so they don't have to use someone else's art. What I do dislike, more than recolors, are face claims. I dislike seeing a bunch of vocaloids running around just with a different names and maybe different personalities. (Now there are exceptions, because recolors can be just as bad as face claims!)
Anywho, I'm ranting now. I'd like it if RPers asked permission or at least tried to make their own drawn pictures of the character before resorting to recoloring.
-nervous giggle- This is only my opinion!
